The largest of the instrument families, the percussion section is made up of a multitude of instruments: piano, marimba, snare, bass drum, toms, drumset, piano strings, pans, hammers – just about everything under the Sun! The percussion section serves as the heart of the rhythm and time section, helping move whatever group they are in move forward together.
Did you know?? Drums can be melodic and have notes like a piano, or be purely rhythmic like a snare drum. These videos show the wide variety of performances the percussion section has to offer to any type of group. With over 400+ instruments in the percussion family, you’ll never run out of options to make cool sounds!
